Risk Of Hypothyroidism In Pregnancy?
Doctor, I am a hypothyroid patient. I’m currently 8 weeks pregnant, I’ve checked myself to a doctor sp. At this time I have not been given medication for my steroids. He said that after the first trimester it was about 5 months of my pregnancy. What I want to ask is is that really the treatment? Please answer Thank you doctor 🙂
Hello, sulaika. Hypothyroidism in pregnancy has a fairly worrying risk. Hypothyroidism in pregnancy is associated with preeclampsia, anemia, postpartum hemorrhage, cardiac ventricular dysfunction, spontaneous abortion, low birth weight, impaired cognitive development, and fetal death. However, the administration of drugs must also be adjusted to the condition of the mother. The dose of the drug is adjusted regularly to maintain blood thyroid hormone levels within normal limits. Internal medicine specialists must have done a thorough examination and have their own treatment plan. And of course later will also be consulted with your obstetrician. It's best if you just follow the doctor's advice and discuss your doubts with your gynecologist again.
